Arctic Fox in Manitoba, Canada

Arctic Fox in Manitoba, Canada

Best place to see Arctic Foxes in Canada

Churchill, Manitoba is home to a wide variety of rare animal species. From the ferocious polar bear to the playful beluga whale, animal lovers who visit the Hudson Bay town can see a large number of interesting wildlife.

One of the more beautiful creatures found in the region is the arctic fox (also called the snow fox or white fox). This small canid evolved to feature a thick, albino coat. This trait allows the arctic fox to blend in with snowy surroundings, easily catch its prey and hide from large predators like the polar bear.

The snow fox was once abundant in arctic regions of the northern hemisphere. While some of the species sub-populations are still thriving, other communities (such as those found in Scandinavia) are considered endangered.

Luckily, these animals are still numerous in Churchill. Thousands of visitors each year flock to the town to view the arctic fox and other varieties of wildlife that can't be found in lower latitudes. If you're interested in getting an up close view of Manitoba's arctic foxes, Canada Polar Bears can help. We've assisted people worldwide in booking their dream, Canadian vacations.

Canada's snow foxes are very interesting creatures. They have adapted well to live near human settlements such as Churchill, but have not lost a bit of their natural, hunting instinct. Their hearing is very powerful, and can be used to locate prey under thick layers of snow and ice. When there is little food to hunt for, the arctic fox will scavenge for leftovers from the area's larger carnivores. What makes up an arctic fox's diet? The short answer is: any kind of meat it can find. The species is particularly fond of lemming, but has also been known to catch a delicious hare, carrion or other small prey if the opportunity arises.

Don't miss your opportunity to see these beautiful creatures. Canada's fox population is stable, but if worldwide trends are any indication, this might not always be the case. Let Canada Polar Bears help you and your family get to Churchill as soon as possible.

Our staff has put together over a dozen Canada vacation packages that are perfect for any nature lover. There's no need to worry if you can't find a plan that fits your needs. We have helped many families customize vacations to fit any schedule or budget.

Hi, I'm Angie!

“I love the West Coast! I moved here from Ontario years ago but am still in awe of the mountains and ocean. I commute to work from an island and am lucky enough to get to enjoy the natural beauty of the West Coast on a daily basis. Sometimes we're even greeted by whales or dolphins as we boat in! We're close to world-class ski mountains, beautiful city of Vancouver, and are just a short ferry ride away from Vancouver Island.”

“Toronto is an exciting and lively city! I visit every summer and love to explore the different neighbourhoods for samples of food and people watching. Taking in the old brick buildings and beautiful murals in Kensington Market, or the view of the entire city from the CN Tower – it's all a treat to experience and you never know what to expect while wandering the streets in a big city!”

Hi, I'm Kirsten!

“The glacial beauty of Moraine Lake in the Rockies first lured me to Canada, but it's the charm of Vancouver that has kept me here! Known as the modern ‘City of Glass’ it's surrounded by a stunning natural environment of ocean and mountains. This results in my perfect day: a morning of watching seaplanes take off from the harbour, and an afternoon to meet the resident grizzly bears on Grouse Mountain.”

“I am in love with our nation's capital, Ottawa. The city has many of its best sights within walking distance of each other. In the centre of it all are the inspiring gothic style parliament buildings, just steps away from the vibrant ByWard Market. And in what other city can you ice skate to work?! The Rideau Canal is a marvel that I will always remember.”

Hi, I'm Eva!

“Montreal is my favourite city in Canada. It’s like a little slice of Europe, with narrow, cobblestone streets, oodles of history and, for the shopaholics out there, some of the best shopping on the continent. If you visit, be sure to try the poutine, a local delicacy of French fries, gravy and cheese curds.”

“Getting on horseback and roaming the open meadows and birch forests with my dog at my side is the perfect quintessential Canadian getaway! Old homesteads and deserted farms, wildlife and horses roaming the fields will get you thinking you’re a cowboy (or girl!) in the Old West. It's totally worth getting up at the crack of dawn to witness the horses being driven in from the meadows.”

“Growing up in Oakville, ON, I was just a short distance from Toronto. Canada's largest city is a bustling metropolis with so many incredible attractions for just about anyone! There are world class museums, outdoor parks, boutique shops and international cuisine. Whenever I'm visiting, I love to take in some local theatre. From award-winning musicals to comedy, Toronto's theatre scene is one of the best in the world!”

Hi, I'm Natalie!

“I am completely smitten with the Maritimes and love how easy it is to cover New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and PEI in one trip. The drive is half of the fun, with stunning seascapes and the amazing Confederation Bridge! The red sand and warm water at all of PEI's beaches completely captivated me. And of course, no PEI visit is complete without tasting some locally-made ice cream and freshly caught mussels!”
